1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair, the leading international art fair dedicated to promoting contemporary art from a diverse set of African perspectives, is pleased to announce a new edition to be held in Marrakech, Morocco. After successful editions in London since 2013 and in New York since 2015, 1:54 is thrilled to add a third location to its global roster of art fairs. 1:54 Marrakech will take place from February 24-25, 2018, with a press and collectors previews on February 23, 2018.
The 2018 Marrakech edition of 1:54 will welcome leading galleries from Africa and around the world, and will feature an ambitious program of talks and events in partnership with local institutions. This new edition will broaden the reach of the fair and further diversify its portfolio of exhibiting and promoting gallerists and artists that are connected to Africa and its diaspora, adding to the global network 1:54 has cultivated through the London and New York fairs for nearly five years.
The Marrakech edition of 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair will take place at La Mamounia, one of Morocco’s most esteemed hotels. La Mamounia is a striking palace set within 18th-century gardens and ringed by the city’s original ramparts. A meeting point between Art Deco, Moorish design and Andalusian influences, the much-loved destination is an exemplar of North African splendour.
